Dell is moving past the Streak. Android Central recently posted up a roadmap that reveals four new Android tablets due out over the next year and change. One, the Gallo, will run Android Honeycomb and launch around April of this year. It will receive a handwriting update in Q4.
Next up, we've got the Sterling. This slate will also run Honeycomb, but it isn't set to land until Q4. The last two tablets, the Opus One and Silver Oak, are due out in Q1 of 2012. No word on their launch OS, but we should be past Honeycomb at that stage of the game. Which begs the question: what sort of update schedule can we expect for Android tablets?
Dell also plans to hedge their bets with Windows 7 tablets. Two- codenamed Rosemount and Peju are due between the end of 2011 and early 2012. Peju is expected to run Windows 8...which means it might actually get battery life worth a damn. Dell may be the first manufacturer to take advantage of the fact that Windows 8 will be compatible with more efficient chipsets.
